        Comments about Core:

        In the ten years I have owned this, my second Leatherman, I have used every tool they included in this nearly perfect package. Some features, such as the knife blade, pliers, and screwdrivers, get used more than others, but this is a great combination. The 22 cm/9 in. ruler is the epitome of handiness and uniqueness combined. This multi-tool also came with a flashlight in the nylon belt holder, which is one of the reasons the _Core_ has gone from fantastic to perfect in my estimation. The only problem with it is not the tool itself: after ten years of almost daily use, the nylon belt holder is disintigrating! Too bad they took this one off the market. They would be doing themselves and many potential customers a service by bringing it back.

          Comments about Core:

          I have been in facilities maintenance for over 25 years and got my first Leatherman, the original, in about 1991. Since then I have given them to my daughter, maintenance staff and my dad. My original is on my boat and my Core, my favorite, is always on my belt. I whip it out and use it for everything it's like having a tool box with you all the time. I love this tool and was saddened to find that it was no longer in production, the wave is a good tool too, those are what I gave to my staff, but the Core is THE tool. It may be heavier than the others but it can work harder than the others.

          Comments about Core:

          I am a disabled Vietnam Veteran. Carried my Core all the time and used for almost everything. Lost my Core in 2006 and my son replaced it with the Wave. Had my Core for years. Would love to replace it but hard to find. Still have the leather case and box it came in. Wouldn't leave home without it. Always have 2 leatherman's. keep one in emergency kit. The other on my belt.
